Mountain Top Featured in Log Cabin Homes Magazine

Mountain Top Log Home Care and Restoration was featured in the January 2014 issue of Log Cabin Homes Magazine.  Here is an excerpt from the article, highlighting Pete and the team's role in creating a dream home for the cabin owners.

"Pete Malkmus of Maryville's Mountaintop Log Home Care did the staining and chinking on the Clayton cabin.  'Another one in Sharron's stable of venerable craftsmen, Pete has an amazing talent for wood finishing,' says Ken.  'I had the great fortune of working alongside him on some of the finish work, an apprentice to the master.'"

Mountain Top Log Home Care and Restoration is extremely honored and humbled to have been featured in this article, and we are thankful to have the chance to serve our home owners with our skills.  

Here are a few more photos of the article as it appeared in the magazine:

Pictures from the Road

My work takes me to some of the most amazing locations imaginable.  It's a novice hobby of mine to take pictures of some of the beautiful things I see while I'm on the road.  From time to time, I may add more pictures like these to document some of my travels.  Enjoy!

About Pete

Prior to getting involved in log cabin restoration I owned a cable tv contracting company and later a marketing business where we did some health coaching and marketed mostly health and nutrition products along with some telecommunication services. I still market the nutritional products and do a little health coaching but I became interested in log cabin maintenance after watching my father struggle with his log cabin maintenance and in having a hard time in hiring credible, honest and competent contractors on the three log cabins he owned.

Mountain Top Log Home Care and Restoration is a Christian company based on Matthew 17:20:

"Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."

Proverbs 3:5 and 6 are also very important verses.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your paths."

I often reflect on these words in needing God's help to solve some of the numerous, frustrating, tedeous problems that are usually associated in restoring a log cabin and in life in general. 

Over the years I have come to the understanding that if we trust in God he really does direct our paths. For me, it is equally important that God is directing the path of the customer as much as he is directing my path. Because of this, it is no surprise to me all of the incredible wonderful people that we have been privileged to have as customers over the years. I believe with all my heart that God is always allowing and orchestrating events in our lives to lead us into right relationship with him and with other people. Log cabin maintenance is about problem solving. We have excelled in the log home care and restoration business because we put the needs of the customer first and rely on God to give us the answers to the problems that we don't always have the answer to.
